La Guarecita Taqueria y Mercado

gordon wing | Apr 20, 2008 12:55 PM

La Guarecita is a colorful storefront on 23rd Street just a short distance from the Grocery Outlet in San Pablo ...... decided to stop in at lunch time so I wouldn't go into the GO on an empty stomach.
Tried a taco al pastor for $1.25 - got it to go because there is not much room there to eat on the premises. Nicely packed with a charred jalapeno and some roasted onion. the filling was good but not the best I've ever had ... the taco as a whole was quite nice and I'll be back to try some of their other offerings eventually. Not a destination but because I'm a regular shopper at the GO nearby I"ll try something else when I"m in the mood.
the market is smallish but has a pretty good variety and the meat counter looks pretty good.
They had a large display of packaged hot dogs in one of their cases. Also had some chicharrone that looked freshly fried.

1848 -23rd Street San Pablo, CA 94806 510. 236-1644
